Cosplay forums?  
Does anyone on my flist cosplay or have a friend who is a serious cosplayer? I'm curious about forums and communities out there where people a) talk cosplay, but b) get to know each other so that you kind of know someone at a con you've never been to before. (I know such things used to exist for conventions themselves back in the day but it was on LJ and I don't know if such communities are still alive and kicking.)

And I know I can google, but I wanted to see if anyone had connections at or a good forum to recommend/maybe a forum to stay away from kind of suggestions first.

Merci! :)

i have several friends who are serious cosplayers (primarily for anime fandoms, some homestuck & video games) but idk if they participate in dedicated cosplay forums. i know they post about it on tumblr and plurk. i've seen a lot of cosplayers on twitter and facebook too. if u want i could ask those friends if they know of good english language cosplay forums.

I would really appreciate that! I follow one FB group, but no one actually talks in it. :(

REPLY! from the friend who does the most cosplay of all my friends that I know of haha:

Hmmm... The only cosplay community I'm a part of is on the Cosplay Amino app. There's also the Cosplay.com forums but I've never posted there. Closest thing for me after that when it comes to discussing cosplay on social media is on Instagram, Twitter, and my cosplay Tumblr.
